Traded Turf for Surf

The boat went away a couple years ago. I don’t want to rehash what a tough decision that was or how difficult it was to part with the boat. Of course I started pining again almost immediately for another one. The difficulty was that the boat’s demand for maintenance and repairs didn’t align well with my demanding work schedule; I simply couldn’t keep up.

So I sold it, and two months later, as I compulsively looked through boat listings, realized another boat would bring with it the same difficulties (admittedly, this makes me sound a bit thick). With a flash of inspiration, I decided to avoid marina fees and the rapid disintegration of all things in water, and instead started looking for a land-based boat with four wheels and brakes.

After an exhaustive search, I opted for a converted Ford Transit cargo van. That was about four months ago, and I could hardly be happier with the decision. Now that the hurdle of this revelation is behind me, I’ll aim to post some details about the van, additions I’ve made, and changes in contemplation along with reporting on adventures.
